Mut1ny is making part of its head/face segmentation dataset available for free. People can use it freely in their own research, private or commercial application if they want. As long as the original dataset is not made public available elsewhere there is not going to be any restriction in its usage. The reason being we discovered there are so few freely/open available segmentation datasets that containing a significant number of test samples for training decent segmentation algorithms. In this particular domain there are known we are aware of.
Our current dataset contains over 19k labeled images (19002 exactly last measured 09/12/2018) and we hope it is going to grow further also with your help.
*NEW* As of 06/08/2018 the dataset also includes a new label (so some of the previous label images have been updated), the new label is facial hair/beard and its label value is: 255,192,192
Here a few example images:
Here is a small sample dataset containing 80 fully labled examples you can download for further inspection if you like.
If you are interested in hearing more on which neural network architecture to use for this dataset why not read this series What Segmentation model to use?
If you are interested in receiving the whole dataset we will ask you to provide a small data contribution helping us to enlarge the dataset with new data.
In detail we ask you to provide 40 previously unlabled images to be added to the dataset. We provide both the unlabled images as well as a tool that can help you to generate these 40 segmented labled images
